World ParaVolley is proud to congratulate our Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games Technical Delegate – Mr. Jonathan Moore from Great Britain – on his selection to the position.
Mr. Moore was the successful candidate in the lengthy multi-stage selection process, which ran from late September through mid-November. In previous Games, the Technical Delegate role typically has fallen to the Sport Director of the Federation, but World ParaVolley decided this time around to shift things up, and to choose an individual whose focus would be solely on the Games themselves.
Mr. Moore is an experienced sports events professional who has been working for Volleyball England since 2009. Currently Competitions and Events Coordinator at Volleyball England, he’s gained a wealth of experience in all disciplines of Volleyball including Sitting Volleyball. He was a member of the team that delivered the Volleyball and Sitting Volleyball competitions at London 2012. He is Loughborough University-educated with an MSc. in Sports Management gained in 2008.
“On behalf of World ParaVolley I am very pleased to welcome Jonathan Moore into the World ParaVolley team as the Technical Delegate for the Tokyo Paralympic Games,” said World ParaVolley President Mr. Barry Couzner. “Jonathan was chosen for this position from an impressive list of candidates and we look forward to working with him to deliver an outstanding Sitting Volleyball competition for the athletes in 2020.”
For his part, Mr. Moore was delighted at having been chosen. On his appointment to the role of Technical Delegate for the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games Sitting Volleyball competition, Jonathan Moore said, “I feel privileged and honoured to take on this important role and responsibility for World ParaVolley and look forward to the challenge and opportunity to assist Tokyo 2020 in delivering an outstanding Sitting Volleyball competition for the athletes, officials and spectators.”
